SUPER Easy Ways To Save on Cat Food

Owning a pet can get expensive. Not only do you have vet bills, flea preventives, and upkeep, you have to feed them. Buying pet food every week, bi-weekly, or monthly can add up to several hundreds of dollars throughout the year.

As a savvy shopper and a pet owner, I’ve found some pretty creative ways to save on pet food over the years.

Always shop the sales. Most pet food goes on sale at least 3-4 times per year. Wait until you find a really good deal on your cat’s food, then buy enough to last for a while. If you shop at Walmart, you can avoid waiting for a good cat deal, since their prices are set at the ‘lowest price’ year round.

Use coupons. Another way to save on cat food is by using coupons. You can print coupons online and find coupons in your weekly newspaper. Pair the coupons with a sale, and you will save even more money!

Compare prices. Do your research to find the best deal on your cat’s food. Some stores will have better deals on a particular type of cat food versus other food products. Sometimes you can find good deals by shopping online, and at other times you will find the best deal in the store. Keep in mind, Walmart price matches; so even if you find a better deal somewhere else, you can take it to Walmart to price match.

Use rebate apps and digital offers. One of my favorite ways to save on pet food is digital offers and rebate apps. There are several rebate apps out there, but there is one, in particular, you may not be aware of, Shopkick. Shopkick has been around for several years, and it’s one of my favorite and EASY apps to rack up FREE gift cards!

What is Shopkick?

Shopkick is an app you can use and earn points towards FREE gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks and more!

All you do is scan items at participating stores, and you earn points. Those points you can use to cash in for FREE gift cards. You also earn MORE points when you buy participating brand items and upload your receipt. You can also receive free points by just walking into certain stores on particular days. During the holiday season, I can quickly rack up hundreds of points by walking into certain stores on double point days.

This is one of the creative ways I save up money for the holidays. I rack up a lot of Shopkick points throughout the year and let them sit until Christmas time. A few years ago I was able to purchase a Nintendo handheld for FREE for my boys because I had racked up enough points to cash out for a high-value gift card!
